Interesting survey. Definitely caused me to be more introspective regarding my life and the hobby. Would also like to see results.

couldn't get passed the first page. it was all about "clubs" and I have zero experience with clubs, thus there are no appropriate answer for me to give.

I thought it was rather interesting. A heli based attempt to look into why folks go into and stay in their hobbies as well as looking for potential trends between "emotional" answers eg: "I'm introverted and use helis as a meaningful way to spend time/learn" or the ever popular "I spend a ton of money on helis because of the challenge, but then have to hide receipts from the wife"
